Letter to the Editor: Far left doesn't want to hear ideas that aren't their own
I read Gene Rigelon's letter to the editor today, Oct. 5, that was in response to Jane Silek's letter. The more I read, the more confused I became. I recalled reading Silek's letter, and could not remember anything that was so awful about it! So I went to the Northern Virginia Daily's website and pulled up her letter. Nothing egregious about her letter at all, but what apparently irritated Rigelon was that someone would dare critize the "annointed one" at all!
I discovered from Rigelon's letter that Silek was representing the right, and that she was only "inflaming" the public to make President Barack Obama a one-term president. I'll bet Silek didn't realize what lofty goals she had when she sat down at her keyboard that day! But further, Rigelon implies that Silek is motivated by fear that her "all-white male heirarchy is being threatened" and that "they will vigorously deny it." The Left never misses a chance to play the race card, but it does get old!
Mr Rigelon is a very good example of those on the far left. They share this idea that they somehow have a right not to hear, see, become aware of, or even be able to imagine any ideas that don't square with their world view.
